I SPY: Hear 'Em Roar

Dec 7, 2016

Love a beautiful Christmas tree?  I do!  Even more so since I've start adulting and realize how much work goes into decorating one.  HA.  Tis' the season to feast your eyes on beautiful trees all over NYC.  Our most famous one that thousands travel to see yearly is the Rockerfeller Center Christmas tree.  It's huge, close to 100 feet, and its size does take your breath away.  But it's not the best!

You know me, I'm always looking for something unique and paying attention to small details, that usually aren't the conventional norm.  So if you ask me, this is my #1 tree.  The Origami Holiday Tree at the American Museum of Natural History.  They have been making origami themed trees annually for the last 30 years, and this year the theme is 'Dinosaurs Among Us'.  A 13 foot tree adorned with over 800 origami dinosaurs and other animals, that museum volunteers started hand folding since March.  It's pretty amazing when you consider how much time went into this tree.

Isn't it cool?  I'm inspired!  I'm going to try and do a spin off of my own for next year.  How to videos are on the museum website.  If I start now and make an ornament a day for the next year I'll have enough to populate a tree.  Long term planning here!

Go check it out or take the kids and hear 'em roar.  When there you can also play a little game of I Spy to see what you can find in the tree.  Very fun!  Up until January 8, 2017.
